Conn Creek Napa 2006 Cabernet Franc

This was one of the treasures from our most recent Napa tripConn Creek is on the Silverado trail and has a welcoming tasting room.  We picked up the Cab Franc and a 2004 Cab Sauv that needs some more time laying down.  The Cab Franc took some time opening up, but once it did, we enjoyed it to the last drop.  It’s not a fruit in your face Cab Franc, but rather holds a bit back with some tannin and structure and still has the deep blackberry/cocoa finish.  This is a great bargain too at $25 for the bottle.
